I am playing in a local league and one of the players is fielding a Nidzilla army and we need help with how to take it down.
6 Fexes - 3 heavy and 3 CC, Taking the 'non anti insta give skill'
2 Hive Tyrants - one with wings,
a squad of Genesteallers and
another squad of CC nasties who have a 12 inch assault range!
I usually field Chaos or Tau but am thinking Eldar might be the go.
Anyone have any success against this nasty variant of an army?
Thanks for Any help.
Sometimes I need to temper my enthusiasm, then I remember the impossible IS possible!

Nidzilla is easy to counter. To start with, you could try the Wraithzilla config, with an avatar and three wraithlords, because T8 S10 just plain works. Next, try bringing a large squad of Fire Dragons, or a couple of small ones. Six or seven dragons will reliably kill a Carnifex each shooting phase. You might also want to try pathfinders. If you don't want wraithlords, consider a couple of D-cannon batteries, because they can autokill monsters. For the hormagaunts and genestealers, make sure that you bring some Dire Avengers for troops. They massacre the poor things.
I'd recommend wraithguard, wraithlords, pathfinders, harlies, an avatar, and armor.
The eldar have enough hard-hitting firepower that if you can focus on a few models you should be fine.

Even with Scorpions and banshees, I wouldn't want to be in CC with Nids unless i had to and even then I would limit the time. Shoot Shoot Shoot. Against Nids, Fire Prisms work wonders, You cna also sned you avatar and wraithlords down there to crack heads.
Wraithguard might actually be useful for once here if u can shoot before he charges you. Otherwise pretty easy to counter. Pathfinders will own them now with the new rending rules, fire dragons, wraithlords, falcons, Nidzilla isn't a problem for eldar armies.
